I purchased a PPK in stainless new. Every time I fired it the mag would release on it's own. I tried different mags. I liked the size and feel but refuse to carry a weapon I can't trust. Mine was sold by Interarms so I don't know if Smith models are any better. Just as well I love my Sig P232, it never fails, no jams, or problems. I always shoot premium ammo.

... mine is also an Interarms' gun.

The guns' problem(s) can be traced to one big asshole-

and those who should know better!

The asshole is Bill Clinton.

Those who should know better are Walther and Smithy.

Interarms aren't producing anymore.

In order to conform to the assholes' weight rules;

Walther simply took the top of a PP and mated it to the frame of a PPk- Two different guns.

(Mine's a PPk not a PPk/S.)

There are distinct differences between the PP and

PPk(S)- though they are measured in the microns- they are the difference between this gun being a life-saver or a disaster.

I simply cannot afford any new guns- so I redid the slide,

enlarged the ejection port, ported the barrel and polished away the differences.

Mine spit out the magazine as well... so I sharpened up the latch a bit and the slot on the magazine- not an easy task w/the ol' Dremel.

Needless to say, this PPk works!

The American PPk's are purely hit-or-miss whether the

gun will be a good, trusted worker...

Y'ih kin thank the AssholeO'Crats and chicken-shit voters for this- Period.

Now, with this Kenyan/Indonesian socialist-fascist(Nazi)- and he fuckin' IS- in the Stink Haus and other US Euro-Socialist shitheads such as the fools from New York, Bloomberg smelling up cities w/his "Gun-Death" wagon inter-city tour and NY Sen.Schumer smelling up Di Strict of Columbia even more than it already rots...

...expect them and others of "The Poisoned" to create even greater disasters.

... thanx, got a brand-new junior! @ 9lbs 5oz's...

ouch!... Makes me an even grand'rpapa. It's the neat time in life... Three generations... of me.

Brandon-Moose! A beautiful... and though a new-born..

handsome baby boy. ... I looked like Alfred Hitchcock when I came into mankinds' global riot.

Been doin' battle w/the left over our Civil Rights.

Our Grande II Amendment stands as Fort McHenry before these 'Euro'Socialists juggernaut of swine.

..."swine"... hell, I could go for some BBQ short-end samm'ich right 'bout now...

It's tirein' and pisses me off terribly- And this situation

has got to be a hard, hard thing for them, all too few,

WWII Vets still with us.

I'll never tire or surrender.

Deputise me or fight me!

Gunny's doin' great! He can run now. Just has trouble pushing off with his hind-legs. Got his 'cat'-balance back, though... Destroyed a hapless mouse with bad timing scurryin' through my kitchen last night.

Spring-time is training time! Gonna teach 'im the

Ways of the Daschund... 'cept the underground tunnel-fight part. Only because he'll never be 100%

again... It was hairy enough when he'd go

underground- before he got hurt!

Jeeze! A dog bred to fight underground in badger-tunnels... Strange habits- A pile of laundry becomes a 'beaver' den to this breed.

Too bad the left wouldn't go an' bury 'emselves instead!

Still shooting the S&W Walther stainless .380. After I put new grips the problem with the sharp edges on the frame seem to have gone away. I bought the larger Ultima Grips from Grips4Guns in Walnut and it really makes the little gun sparkle. Only wish I had gotten the checkered instead of the plain but it is still an improvement in feel. Makes it easy to keep tight groups at the range.

I checked out Grips4Guns like you said and they do have some really nice wood grips. As soon as my wife is looking the other way I am going to get me a set of those checkered ones. I really do not like the cheap plastic that it comes with. Thanks for the tip.

Mine is an Interarms-made Walther PPK in .32ACP. I've owned the gun since 2000, when I first got my CHL, and it's been my primary (along with a Bersa Thunder380) concealed carry weapon. To me, this is the perfect CC gun, because that is what it was designed for, lo those many years ago (the 1920s) by Walther for the German undercover police, to their specifications, and the Walther engineers did a very good job. It has taken every kind of ammo I've put through it without a burp. Only problem I ever had with the gun is one instance when it would stovepipe on me every now and then. Took it to the smith, who could find nothing wrong with it. He did suggest that I make sure and keep a firm grip when firing, as a not-so-firm grip on the weapon would cause it to stovepipe. And sure enough, that was right about the time I started getting arthritis in my gun hand. Yes, .32 is not much of a "manstopper" caliber, but I figure if I ever need to pull it, it's going to be at a very close range no more than 10-15'), and the Federal Hydro-Shoks I generally keep in the gun will get the miscreant's attention.
